More than 50 abstracts, including 11 oral presentations, span Pfizer’s robust portfolio of approved and pipeline therapies across its key tumor areas and core scientific modalities New five-year progression-free survival data for LORBRENA® (lorlatinib) in first-line ALK-positive advanced lung cancer Results from ECHELON-3, third Phase 3 study to demonstrate overall survival benefit for ADCETRIS® (brentuximab vedotin) in a type of lymphoma NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) highlights its progress in advancing new potential standards of care in Oncology at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO®) Annual Meeting, taking place May 31 to June 4 in Chicago. More than 50 abstracts, including 11 oral presentations, will be presented from Pfizer’s broadened portfolio of approved and pipeline therapies across the company’s key tumor areas and core scientific modalities, including small molecules, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and bispecific antibodies. “We are excited to participate in our first ASCO Annual Meeting following the creation of Pfizer’s new Oncology organization, where we will highlight our efforts to accelerate breakthrough medicines that help people with cancer live better and longer lives,” said Chris Boshoff, Chief Oncology Officer and Executive Vice President, Pfizer. “We are looking forward to key data presentations across our newly expanded portfolio, including additional evidence reinforcing the benefit of several approved medicines and promising new data from our deep and diverse pipeline.” Key research includes an oral presentation of new five-year progression-free survival (PFS) results from the Phase 3 CROWN study of LORBRENA® (lorlatinib) in previously untreated anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which will also be featured in ASCO’s embargoed pre-meeting press briefing on Wednesday, May 29. Additionally, results from the Phase 3 ECHELON-3 study of ADCETRIS® (brentuximab vedotin) in combination with lenalidomide and rituximab in relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) will be presented for the first time in an oral late-breaking session. Pfizer will also present Phase 1 data for several priority pipeline therapies, including oral presentations with updated results for sigvotatug vedotin (B6A; integrin beta-6 [IB6]-directed ADC) in NSCLC and data for PF-07248144, a potential first-in-class KAT6 inhibitor, in hormone receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) metastatic breast cancer (mBC). “At ASCO, Pfizer will share important data highlighting the long-term impact of our medicines for patients, including five-year follow-up from the LORBRENA CROWN study, as well as the third Phase 3 study to demonstrate overall survival benefit for ADCETRIS in a type of lymphoma – in this case, relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma,” said Karin Tollefson, Chief Oncology Medical Officer, Pfizer. “We are also looking forward to sharing updated results from our pipeline, where we now have over 50 programs in development and are rapidly advancing 20 ongoing pivotal trials across our key tumor types.” Key ASCO Presentations Pfizer will present data across its four tumor areas of focus at ASCO: breast cancer, genitourinary cancer, hematology-oncology and thoracic cancers, which includes lung cancer. Breast Cancer In breast cancer, Pfizer will present data for two next-generation pipeline medicines for HR+/HER2- mBC: updated Phase 1/2a safety data for atirmociclib, a potential best-in-class, highly selective cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4) inhibitor currently in Phase 3 development, and an oral presentation featuring Phase 1 data for PF-07248144, a potential first-in-class KAT6 inhibitor. Additionally, data for TUKYSA® (tucatinib) demonstrate its activity in previously treated HER2-mutated mBC, and new real-world evidence continues to support the value of IBRANCE® (palbociclib) in HR+/HER2- mBC, including from HENRI-3, a SEER-Medicare analysis evaluating overall survival (OS) with IBRANCE plus an aromatase inhibitor (AI) versus AI alone. Genitourinary Cancer Highlights from Pfizer’s genitourinary cancer portfolio will include updated data that continue to reinforce the potential of several recent priority launches, including PADCEV® (enfortumab vedotin-ejfv) in combination with KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in locally advanced/metastatic urothelial cancer,* XTANDI® (enzalutamide) in non-metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (nmCSPC) with biochemical recurrence at high-risk for metastasis,** and TALZENNA® (talazoparib) in combination with XTANDI in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) with homologous recombination repair (HRR) mutations. Additionally, updated Phase 1 data will be presented for the investigational enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) inhibitor mevrometostat in combination with XTANDI in mCRPC; Pfizer anticipates initiating Phase 3 studies for this combination later this year. Hematology-Oncology In addition to the ECHELON-3 OS results for ADCETRIS in relapsed/refractory DLBCL, Pfizer will present seven-year OS results for ADCETRIS in advanced classical Hodgkin lymphoma,*** as well as new clinical and pharmacokinetic data with alternative dosing regimens for ELREXFIO™ (elranatamab-bcmm) in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma from the MagnetisMM-9 trial. Thoracic Cancer In its thoracic portfolio, in addition to the LORBRENA CROWN results, Pfizer will present updated Phase 1 data for sigvotatug vedotin in advanced NSCLC, a promising investigational ADC that recently initiated a Phase 3 study. Additional Tumor Types An oral presentation on extended duration of response from the Phase 3 MOUNTAINEER trial adds to the positive pro TUKYSA in colorectal cancer. In addition, data will be presented from the innovaTV 301 trial of TIVDAK® (tisotumab vedotin-tftv), for which a supplemental Biologics License Application for the treatment of previously treated recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer was granted priority review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act date of May 9, 2024.**** Additional information on key Pfizer-sponsored abstracts, including date and time of presentation, follow in the chart below.
